No a GEDCOM is a GEDCOM. Reguardless of the platform IBM PC or Mac PC.

So in a text editor NOT A WORD PROCESSOR open the GEDCOM and review the individual. My guess is that the target database probably only allows one NAME tag and it picks up the second one last (overlaying the) first one. This was common in programs at one time.
